Check request forms are available in the Accounts Payable office (Smyth Hall, Suite 42). Please include vendor, vendor address, Tax ID# where applicable, amount requested, a brief explanation and the general ledger number to be charged. Always attach original receipt(s) and/or back up documentation to support the amount of request and reason for request. Once approved by the department head, bring to AP for the Controller's approval.
Accounts Payable processes AP-reviewed and approved check requests received before 4:30p.m. on Friday by the following Thursday. All checks will be mailed.
Accounts Payable maintains credit cards with Wegmans and Home Depot. Sign the appropriate card out in the AP office and return with the card to AP with the original receipt within 24 hours. AP will forward the receipt back to the originating department for approval for payment.
**Gift card purchases are not allowed for any Nazareth employee – faculty, staff or student.**
Additional Compensation to Employees
No employee should receive a gift card. If the employee's supervisor wants a stipend to be considered they must complete a "Notice of Personal Action" (NPA) through the Human Resource Office. If approved the employee would receive the additional amount through payroll.
Allowed Gift Card Purchases:
Explanations must be provided for any gift card purchase. Include the following information:
The maximum gift card amount allowed is $50.
Invoices are handled much like check requests. Once received in AP, with departmental approval and a general ledger number, they are forwarded to the Controller for approval. All Controller-approved invoices will be scheduled for payment based on the due date noted by the vendor. Invoice payments are mailed directly to the vendor.
For payment requests using funds from department(s) other than one’s own and/or using funds from multiple sources:
The email must state:
Print the email and attach to the approved invoice or check request. Forward to Accounts Payable for processing.
On the approved invoice/check request, please make note to Accounts Payable that there are additional funding sources so the staff can allocate the funds appropriately within the payment system.
NOTE: All invoices/check requests must have at least one handwritten approval; additional approvals can be in an electronic format (i.e. email).
For purchases over $500, Nazareth College requires a Purchase Order Requisition form. Include vendor name, vendor address, fax number, items ordered, and the general ledger account number to be charged. Obtain department head approval and forward to Accounts Payable.
Purchase orders are printed once each week on Fridays. The Purchase Order copy will be forwarded to the requisitioning department. AP will fax the original Purchase Order to the vendor upon your request and when fax number is provided.
Once an invoice arrives for a PO order, it is stamped with Approval for PO Payment Stamp and forwarded back to the requisitioning department for approval. If the order has been fulfilled, write "okay to pay" on the invoice and forward back to Accounts Payable for the payment to be processed.
